    I brought a tripod and set the camera to night mode with no flash and got some amazing colors to show

    If you have a dslr, go to the photo area and ask for Brian, and show him what kind of camera you have. Ask him what settings you would recommend when shooting in the cave.

    For those who have never been to a cavern before, this is definitely a good intro to the cavern world. Enjoyed the entertaining historical intro and appreciated the hand-powered river ride!

    Get here early & be the first group to take the tour. Bring a jacket or sweatshirt. Temp in the cave is 52. It's a walking tour. Not recommended for babies in strollers, wheelchairs & hard of walking

    Take the Adventure Tour and ask for Carson, he's fun, knowledgeable and took a lot of cool pictures for us!! Like people said, wear jeans and a sweatshirt as it's 52 degrees year-round....

    Bring a sweatshirt with a hood. It is always 52 degrees and it drips on you!

    The building claims to be really old, but honestly it looks like something from Disneyland.

    I really enjoyed the lantern tour. Our tour guide looked like Jason Segal. And yes, it's always 50ish degrees in the caves!

    This place is amazing! I really enjoyed the lantern tour and being left to wander with our candles after.

    The boat ride is wild, and they shut the lights off for it. Watch for falling cave kisses!

    It's busy during the school day but a lot of fun. Don't forget to bring a jacket or sweater, as the caverns are 52 degrees year round. The kids like the mining, so it's worth doing in lieu of the gift Read more
